The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

Payday FreeCell • Re: FULL SCREEN (Merged Thread)

By VanillaSkyLove » August 21st, 2016, 11:37 pm

Particularly for this game, I have to first set my Internet Explorer screen to 150%. Then when the game popup window opens, the cards look much larger. Only with Payday FreeCell do I have to do this and, yes, it is a pain to have to return screen to 100% each time to view other pages. So to avoid this, I play PFC (and most other Pogo games) in Internet Explorer, while I do all my web surfing-email-etc. in Mozilla Firefox. At the same time. Hope this helps some (it's the only way I know how to do it). :-)

I am glad to see that other people are having an issue with the page size too. This is a tough enough game without having to fight to see the cards. Is there a way to have this adjusted. Thanks.

Please read the post above yours and try the suggestions.

Payday Free Cell is a Flash game but there is a new Java update: version 8.101, so update your java in order to play Java based games.

Sign out of Pogo and clear your browser's cache, history, temp files, and cookies.

Close your browser after that and restart your computer.

It appears that some rooms are not up and running yet.

For now, try a room that has more than eight players in it.

That's what worked for me.

Looks like trouble at Pogo. So many game rooms are marked closed. The rest don't seem to work. Looks like I have no excuses now not to do the dishes!

Not just happening here but in a number of games including First Class Solitaire and World Class Soltaire. No help from the EA Help!

I would like to see Payday Free Cell be played in full screen. Thank you it certainly would help the vision impaired.
Your attention to this would be greatly appreciated.

Payday FreeCell • Re: badges?

By Librarymary1 » July 13th, 2016, 3:29 am

It does take quite awhile to rank up in this game, but it is possible. I believe it is one of those kind of games that you really have to like. In my opinion it is one of the more difficult of the original solitaire games to win.

There are 70 Ranks at this time. The first badge (Rank 10), Payday Herald will be awarded for winning 100 games, The Payday Herald Badge. The second badge for Rank 20 will be awarded when you have won a total of 300 games, that will be the Payday Jester Badge.. It will take a total of 12,150 games won to reach Rank 70 and being awarded the Card Rider Badge.
